Description of problem:
I'm trying to import a VM from VMware. On the "Import Virtual
Machine(s)" screen, my VCenter username is not accepted, because "Name
can only contain 'A-Z', 'a-z', '0-9', '_' or '-' characters" and it
contains a '.'. I would think a '.' in the username should be OK.
In addition to allowing dots within the user name, this bug fix also added a support for the following user name format: domainName\userName.
Till this fix the following formats were allowed in username field:
In this bug fix we also allow the following format for Windows, since it may be used by customers as shown in screenshot of BZ 1496744.:
VMware 6.0.0 Build 2594327
1. Authenticate to ESXi using SSO user, add SSO domain/user with dots in it and assign global permission to it.
2. Browse webadmin -> VM -> import dialog, enter VMware details and domainName\userName (in my case the domain\user created is: email@example.com), select VM to import and import it.
3. Verify VM imported and can be run properly.
4. Repeat test case for Windows and Linux VMs.
